Rained Out for Fourth Time at Merrittville

by Steven Petty.......THOROLD, ONTARIO (June 1, 2019) … The term déjà vu was exactly how it was Saturday night at Merrittville Speedway as for the second consecutive week, mother nature intervened just prior to getting cars on the track and forced speedway management to cancel the June 1st program.

It was the fourth rain out of the season in eight weeks of scheduled competition at the historic Thorold, Ontario speedplant. Young McNamara Barristors and Solicitors was scheduled to present the racing program in support of Autism Ontario Niagara Region and was to feature the popular Autograph Night.

With the rainout, Autograph Night will be moved to next Saturday, June 8. Fans that purchased tickets at the grandstand gates are encouraged to keep their rain stub for entry for next week.

The doubleheader weekend continues Sunday, June 2, as Thorold Auto Parts presents Wreckfest 2019. Ontario’s first ever School Bus demolition derby will highlight the show that will also feature a $2500 to win 4 Cylinder Demolition Derby, kids Powerwheels Demolition Derby and the first ever Redneck Burnout competition on dirt! Pit gates will open at 9 am with front gates at 11 am and showtime is at 1 pm.

Saturday racing returns on June 8 as Pro Battery presents a full Bobcat of Hamilton Weekly Racing Series program featuring home race number two of the Insta Panels Duel on the Dirt for the 4 Cylinders, which is also race two of the TMR Racing Triple Crown plus the annual and popular best appearing dog contest. Pit gates will open at 5, with grandstands at 5:30 and race time is scheduled for 7 pm.
